Free Webinar: Medicare Home Health Proposed Payment Rule 2020
Posted on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 2:48 PM
Last week, CMS issued the proposed rule for the 2020 payment model, PDGM, including rates of payment that would start January 1, 2020. Unfortunately, the proposed rule still includes a significant “behavioral adjustment,” which amounts to an 8.01% reduction in base payment rates calculated on the assumption that HHAs will modify service and documentation practices in ways that would increase Medicare spending.
The proposed rule also offers some minor tweaks in the payment model and sets out 2020 payment rates for the first time. In addition, the proposed rule includes unrelated adjustments in other rules affecting home health, including the 2021 home infusion therapy benefit, quality measures and the Home Health Value Based Purchasing Demonstration program.
NAHC is working in partnership with Congress to secure sensible payment reforms and to protect the 3.5 million Medicare beneficiaries who receive home health services throughout the country.
Attend this webinar to learn more about the new proposed rule and how it will directly affect your Medicare home health agency. In addition, Mr. Dombi will explain how NAHC is fighting the behavioral assumptions and what you can do to help.
